The Fighting hope


The Fighting hope
   William J. Hurlbuts melodrama opened on 22 September 1908 at the Stuyvesant Theatre and ran a solid 231 performances, thanks largely to the performance by Blanche Bates as a wife who is determined to clear her husband's name, only to find that he is indeed guilty and that her destruction of evidence will incriminate a truly good man. All ends well, because the police shoot her philandering husband, thus clearing the way for the good man to express his feelings for her. "Miss Bates brings a most appealing sincerity and much variety in the role of the wife. She delivers several hysterical scenes with complete and convincing abandonment to the emotions demanded" (New York Times, 23 September 1908). David Belasco produced it.
